A Perspective of the Clinical Research on Traditional Chinese Medicine in the Treatment of Cardiovascular Diseases in the 1990's

by Chen Keji

The author analyses the Western (WM) and TCM treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), hypertension, arrhythmia, heart failure, ischemia-reperfusion injury and atherosclerosis. In the treatment of AMI, for example, he notes that in the 1970's, the combination of TCM and Western treatment was able to significantly lower the mortality rate, but that due to major developments in the WM treatment of AMI in the last decade, the statistical benefits of TCM in the treatment of AMI have been overtaken. He outlines the directions of research TCM needs to take to improve this situation. Surprisingly, he states that in the field of hypertension, no significant research has been done in the use of TCM despite its great potential. In all areas of the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, he stresses the need for further research to improve the effects of TCM.
